.NET Events and Delegates in MATLAB

Use .NET event callbacks, create and call .NET delegates

A delegate is a way to tell C# which method to call when an event is triggered. An event is a notification by the .NET framework that an action has occurred. These topics show how to use .NET events and delegates in MATLAB®.

.NET Delegates

In the .NET Framework, a delegate is a type that defines a method signature.

.NET Delegates With out and ref Type Arguments

The MATLAB rules for mapping out and ref types for delegates are the same as for methods.
